From the very first moment, the complex aroma spectrum of the La Motte Millennium shows that each grape variety contributes to the unique character of the red wine blend. In the form of raspberry aromas, Merlot (52%) provides the fruity character, which is surrounded by a light herbal note and nuances of toffee derived from the Cabernet Franc grape variety (30%). Furthermore, Petit Verdot (10%) and Malbec (8%) give the blend aromatic spicy notes and earthy tones. On the palate, blueberry and cinnamon aromas are particularly noticeable, accompanied by fresh acidity. The grapes have matured separately in French oak for twelve months before blending. Enjoy the La Motte Millennium, either pure or with dark meat or game dishes.

The farm has a rich French Huguenot history with Gabriel du Toit planting the first vines in 1752. Today, the estate belongs to Dr Rupert’s daughter, Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg and together with her husband and CEO of the estate, Hein Koegelenberg, they have turned La Motte into an internationally respected wine producer and popular wine tourism destination.
